Is This A Scam?

Maybe you have seen a site like this one.

make money blog

Someone claiming to make $5,000 a month posting a link on google. Typically the site is Someone’s first name Money Blog, in this case the person is “Mary”. It could easily be “Jay Wilson” or “Greg Williams” or “Cory Jordan” or “Jonah Battle”. All of them seem to be able to Make $5000-$10000+ a Month Posting Links on the Internet. Good for them.

What I don’t understand is why they all seem to have the same friends. When I say friends, I mean people who comment on their blog about how much money they make. They show the same images: faces with checks in front showing how much money Google has paid them.

Seems a little strange, but come on, $5,000 a month for anyone with a computer and basic typing skills can earn cash on Google. From the sounds of this, this should a slam dunk.

Mary Steadman from San Jose, CA had a compelling story on how filling out one simple online form changed her life. She told me how she lost my job as a boring account rep for a manufacturing company a few months back, then changed her life by getting Google Biz Kit, Internet Biz Kit (have to have both, this is key), posting links given by Google, then finally depositing the checks that Google sends.

The links Mary provided lead to here:

signup

By now, the frenzy is building, I’m thinking qualifying shouldn’t be that difficult. I mean, I have a computer and basic typing skills and the form that needs to be filled out seems like a no brainer.

Just as I thought – I qualify!

And this is where it ends.

I know, I know, I’m only “one click away” from making up to $943 a day on Google, but they want my credit card information.

Sure, it is only a $1.97 for shipping.

pay

But nowhere up to this point is a “full disclosure” of what exactly am I getting.

I was surprised (maybe I shouldn’t be) not to find any earnings’ disclaimer. No where in the process of signing up did I find out if the results mentioned were typical or not.

I back tracked a little – went back to Mary’s Money Blog, the cached version anyway – and found a disclaimer. It certainly wasn’t easy to find and I wouldn’t expect the typical web surfer to notice this. Why? Because it was commented out and did not show up on the web page!

So, here I sit $5,000 a month poorer for not signing up for the opportunity that Mary Steadman from San Jose has successfully used.

P.S. – Seems that there are people out there that doubt the legitimacy of Mary Steadman’s opportunity – like the Electron Plumber.

P.S.S. – For those willing to do some good old fashion work, there is opportunity to get paid by Google – click here to find out.

P.S.S.S. – Getting a little more traction, Aaron Wall has written about “Google Money“.
